Transport, a thematic exhibition of work by Marc Newson, bringing together for the first time all of his major designs for transport since 1999 opened last night at Gargosian Gallery’s Chelsea location. The material will remain on view through October 16, 2010.
Transport will premiere Aquariva by Marc Newson, Newson’s reinterpretation of the famous leisure speedboats produced by the iconic Italian boatmaker Riva. Drawing on the contemporary Aquariva and its predecessor of the 1960s, the glamorous Aquarama, Newson has infused the classic model with his streamlined and forward-looking style using ideas imported from his innovative work in automotive and aerospace design.
The exhibition is a terrific opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Newson’s more fantastic productions. With a hand in almost everything – you might recall an interview I did with him about fashion – it is nice to see work compartmentalized.
